English term or phrase: closure
Closure. There's one. My students cannot stay in that place where thinking must occur. Closure! Any kid who says "closure" I flunk. They want closure, there's their closure.
Roser Berdagu
fin de clases
Explanation:
I guess the students want the closure of the academic year, no more clases, for they dont want to "stay in that place where thinking must occur"

cierre emocional


Explanation:
Some internet references:

El mechero y las llaves representan "closure" ["cierre emocional"].

http://home.cc.umanitoba.ca/~fernand4/entre/fernande.html

12. El cierre emocional:

Las técnicas de cierre emocional apelan al amor, al miedo, al orgullo, a la seguridad, a la emulación, al beneficio, a la necesidad,etc.

http://www.ctv.es/USERS/francisco.muro/boletin/boletin8/tecn...

. E incluso cuando la medida represiva puede fallar, entonces viene el razonamiento, al menos puede brindar justicia y cierre emocional a los parientes de las víctimas.

Might I say, that your question is a bit confusing?


Explanation:
closure = el cierre, la clausura, el fin
el término,
apply the closure = terminar el debate

these would be the translations for "closure", but I'm having trouble understanding your intentions. What ever they are, I don't agree with your pedagogical tactics and pls remember, one has to be patient when working with
children.


    I love my kids!

BJD: Sounds like she's translating a book. And closure is more of a psychological concept.
